May 23: Jacob’s Trouble

The end of God’s patience

God described Himself to Moses has having a “long nose.”  Actually the Hebrew words are:  אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם which are usually translated as “long suffering.”  The words are quite descriptive as they give the image of a horse with nostrils flaring as a sign of anger (Psalm 18:8, 15). God was warning that there comes a time when even His patience ends.  Such a time is coming again soon.

Ezekiel 7:1-4

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

 “And you, son of man, thus says the Lord God to the land of Israel:

‘An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land.

Now the end has come upon you,

And I will send My anger against you;

I will judge you according to your ways,

And I will repay you for all your abominations.

My eye will not spare you,

Nor will I have pity;

But I will repay your ways,

And your abominations will be in your midst;

Then you shall know that I am the Lord!’

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RETURN TO GOD, REPENT AND RECEIVE SALVATION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
